Friday’s editorial applauds the ongoing state audit and study of our voting machines, which we’ve often complained about in the past:
When South Carolina voters head to the polls to vote for president on Nov. 6, the outcome is not expected to be particularly close. But if it were, or if a state or local race comes down to the wire, how confident would we be that the paperless voting machines we use got the outcome right?
For most of us, the answer is mostly confident. Probably confident. About 90 percent or so. Is that enough?
